We are too hard on our sports stars, for sure. Gordon Heyward maybe needs a
rest from the pressure of losing....maybe Jimmer added to the team could help
with that. Got a feeling they would be good traveling buddies as well. Best
wishes to Hayward in his personal life. He has shown great character and
leadership thus far.
When a injury occurs the team can try different players at different positions.
Good for the learning process. As mentioned players will have "those
nights." Just like every day at our jobs is not terrific..
Would Malone or Stockton ever have even thought of missing a game for a bruised
kneecap? Never. Players these days are so weak and wimpy. Sad.
It will be good for him to sit and watch. He is not doing the job when he is in
Gordon Hayward Season FG% .397Gordon Hayward Season 3PT% .300Dismal. Not just a couple of games either. Ewww.Kanter is really
the best starting shooter we have. Its unfortunate that his pick and roll
defense is the equivalent of Al Jeffersons. It is inexcusable for a player with
his athletic talent and mobility to be ALLOWED to continue to play defense like
that. 13 games in and we are seeing the exact same lousy defense
from Kanter defending the high pick and roll. Teams are thrilled to see we have
a great replacement for Al Jefferson which equates to a layup or dunk in crunch
time. Meanwhile our coaching staff does nothing about it and it is allowed to
continue. Corbin needs to be fired for this alone. The
organization and Corbin are on the record blathering on about building a strong
defensive team....yet we same the same mistakes and players are allowed not to
defend when we know Kanter has the mobility and the motor to move his
feet....but he doesn't have to because he gets to play without making the
effort. Bench Kanter til he gets it and fire Corbin for allowing
In search of victory #2...The search will end eventually...It just won't happen tonight.
@ DocHollidayTwo questions:1. Ever bruised your
kneecap? Hurts like crazy!2. I may have missed this bit of news but does
this article say anywhere that Hayward is not playing tonight?I'm sure that if Karl or John had a bruised kneecap at some point that
they did whatever they could that was available to alleviate the pain and then
go out and play. Give the kid a break! Let's see you go out and play!
Come on "fans" quit getting so down. this season is going great.
Can't wait for the next 3-4 years with youngsters growing into a contender!
DRay. Jimmer and Hayward would be good traveling buddies? what? why? What in the
world would make you think that? Let me guess.
daviscougI play basket ball twice a week in a city league. I
don't get paid to play, but I have to pay to play. I have bruised my knees,
thighs, had hurt ankles. I keep playing, and I am just playing for fun.
@Jazz SourceThat's what you get when you are learning from Al
Jefferson and watching him play...
